    Woz OK's Apple I Resurrection

    Steve Wozniak, Apple's co-founder, has given his blessing to an entrepreneur who will sell replicas of the legendary Apple I -- the machine that launched Apple. By Leander Kahney.

    My wife received this because of her membership with Slash Dot. They sent her and E.Mail about the news. She is interested to know what the thoughts are of members on this forum. Would it be worth the $200? What would you be able to do with the Apple I? Would greatly appreciate your imput, thank you!

    I was hoping to get some comments on the use and value of purchasing the Apple I. Not really sure if it woudl just be a collectors item or a working computer!

    It's sole value is for curiosity/interest...

    It's not even much of a collector's item (imo)... and it's certainly not a very usable item overall. :)

    Thank you kindly arn for your educated opinion. My first thoughts about the subject agree with yours.

    My wife seemed interested in purchasing one. So decided to get opinions from this forum before a mistake was made!
